Un-remembering network credentials....

Q: Un-remembering network credentials....

Silly question and in all my work on computers this is the first time I've run into it...

If you log into another computer via LAN, enter the user name and pasword, check the "remember me" box .... how do you later tell it to forget you so that it will ask for your username and password again?

(p.s. I know how to manage my own... it's a problem that I need to delete someone else's)

Preferred Solution: Un-remembering network credentials....

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We have a number of users where, when they change their network password, their Outlook will start prompting for the username and password.  This will happen every day until credential manager is cleared out. Then things go back to normal, until the
user has to change their password again.  It seems that once this problem happens this user will always have this problem.  The users are frustrated and is very vocal about how IT can't seem to fix the problem.  Any idea how to fix this permanently? 
Articles I have read say this is a known issue and there isn't a fix.  Office 2013 is the version.

I log into several computers on my windows network regularly using Start -> Run ->

The first time these pop up I usually type in a username and password that work and hit remember my username and password. Now I want to use a different username and password for that computerName. How can I do this?

Alright, so I've noticed a trend that has happened in SEVERAL computers so I'm inclined to think it's an OS thing and not a hardware thing.

When I do a clean installation of Windows 8.1 Pro for our client workstations, by default the Ethernet is set to use DHCP. If I then join the domain, the network properly shows up as "Domain network" each time I boot (and as such, the GPOs are in effect - such as allowing pings through Windows Firewall)

But as soon as I change the connection to a static IP, it stops working. It starts showing up as "Unknown network" and type Public. I even tried using the registry method from this thread.

But regardless, even if I force it to be type 1 (private) or type 2 (domain) it STILL shows up every time I reboot as Public, with a name of "Unknown network". What really irks me is that I can temporarily fix this problem by opening up Device Manager, uninstalling the network connector, then doing "scan for hardware changes." This puts it back on DHCP, and as such it shows as a "Domain network" again. I can change it to the desired static IP, and it will keep that new IP and remain a Domain network... until the computer is rebooted. It then immediately goes back to being a public "unknown network."

Is there some odd incompatibility in Windows 8.1 between static IPs and domain networks? It works perfectly fine on Windows 7, and it seems to work fine in 8.1 if the network is DHCP, but ... Read more

So, I have a class "A" IP Subnet in my home and a class "C" subnet. one is outside the "corporate" firewall and one is inside.

My Laptop wireless always loves to obtain the 10.0.0.1 which is the ISA router/firewall. Obviously there is an IP conflict here because the TMG/ISA server/GATEWAY already has that..

So.. Let me get a little deeper.

This only happens after a reboot and the IP settings that it "desires" are the following:

IP: 10.0.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.1

Now if anyone reading this thread knows... It should be....

IP: 10.0.0.101
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Gateway: 10.0.0.1
DNS: 10.0.0.4 = MY DNS
DNS: 10.0.0.5 = MY DNS

Should I delete the network controller, or do I have to delve into the registry to get this crap sorted out?

The Laptop ALWAYS connects to the N router but has a problem assigning the IP where it will just assign a bad IP or "first ip" in the sequence.

There are times that I need to get beyond the firewall, and I need to assign it a class "c" but I don't understand why this should be having a bearing upon future connections.

I have repeatedly reset the "arp" and DNS; to no avail.

I have typed this command at my last chance:
"netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt"

If you can give me any other pointers, let me know.

Could anyone please tell me what I need to enter for "Network Credentials" to access these shared folders on I7PC from I7HASWELL?
I have password-protected sharing OFF but I am still asked for account name and password.
I7PC has only one account, I enter the account name and password, but they are not accepted.
(I also tried entering the one and only account details on I7HASWELL, but that did not work either. I didn't think this was the correct thing to do anyway!)

This issue arose after upgrading I7HASWELL from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
I7PC is still running Windows 8.1.
All shares worked without issue when both PCs were running Windows 8.1.

A:Network Credentials

These things can be very frustrating, speaking from experience! Win 10 is more fussy with credentials, for sure.

Looking at that Security popup it does look like you got the NAS name in there. compname\userid is the username required. In your case, I7PC\Aileen.

If you click the Remember my credentials box, it should store these credentials. Ctrl-panel\Credential Manager\Windows Credentials will show these. You can add and edit them there as well.

Just confirm you have followed these guidelines for a start.

Edit:- fixed error in username.

I started with a network consisting of a Win 8.1 and a Mac OSX 10.9 connected in a workgroup. At that point I was able to access the Mac from the Win PC without any login. Subsequently I added a Win 7 PC to the workgroup. Now when I try to access the Mac, Win 8.1 gives me a panel asking for my login credentials. I have been to the Credentials Manager and set the credentials for the Mac. However, when I try to enter the log on and password that I specified in the Credentials Manager, I receive a "password incorrect" message. I would prefer to have no log on at all the way I was to able to access the Mac previously.

A:Win 8.1 Network Credentials Not Recognized

This is a Mac OS issue. It is because of Samba why you are getting that issue with the Mac. Also if IPTables is screwed up on the Mac, or Firewall is enabled, you will have issues.

Steven

are all the machines win 7 or is the network mixed OS? Homegroup uses IPv6 and that sometimes has connectivity issues. You can verify that is the problem by creating a new network connection using "workgroup" not homegroup. If it works you can then disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

Added benefit workgroup uses the older password setup which is easier.

A:what is the deal with network credentials?

Click on Start
All the way at the top is your profile for Windows 10
Right click on it and select your account settings
(You can also access this by... Start>Settings>Accounts)
Whatever you used to sign into your PC/Win 10 is your Credentials

It's either a Microsoft login or a local one you created. Either way, you can change this under the main Account page or if you look to the left of the pane you will see "Sign-in options". Change it there if you want.

When prompted, enter those Credentials on the other PC's connected to your home network/router.

Hi,
Hopefully someone can help with this query that after days of trying myself and hours of google searches I can?t solve.

I have a home network:
2 windows 8.1 machines
2 windows 7 machines
D-link NAS ? 2 Volumes
Sign on?s are all Local account

All used to connect successfully to the NAS for backup until about two weeks ago then the mappings to the volumes failed and every time I try to map or connect I get a Windows Security box requiring me to ?Enter Network Credentials? and my file history requires me to re enter credentials.

I have tried:
Machine user name and password
NAS username and password in straight and \\NASname\Username format
IP address and Volume reference and every combination I canthink of

But to no avail the security box just bounces back and i try again....

I have tried various combinations of on/off in the advanced Network and Internet options, resetting the NAS etc.

Sometimes I get the ?Enter Network Credentials? message when addressing the NAS - sometimes I can expand the NAS and then get the message when I try to address the Volumes. Sometimes I get a different message about not having the permission to map the drive instead of the network credentials one ? the frustrating thing is the variability in error or message that makes it even more difficult to solve the problem.

i have tried lots of forums and whilst there are people with similar issues none of the solutions that some have found work for me.

Thanks

A:Network Credentials & NAS mapping

Go back to the NAS and double check user settings. That they are setup correct, along with the shares are correct for the users. Also that it is on the same workgroup (keep both the computers and the NAS set for "Workgroup").

Then make sure Network Discovery is enabled on the computers.

I am using Win 7 Pro 64bit on a 2003 SBS. Everything has been working fine for the last three months, but this week, the computer keeps forgetting my network login credentials. I log in to the Win 7 machine user and domain as usual with my network login and password and everything is fine for 2 or 3 hours, then suddenly I dont have access to drives that are mapped to the server drives. I get a dialog box saying that the drive is not accessible.

I can get to my server drives by going through the network icon below my mapped drives in File Manager, but it askes me to reenter my login and password. Then I can get to my server drives, but sometimes the mapped drives will respond to this and sometimes they won't. It seem like half the time I have to remap the drives to get access, the other half of the time I can use them immediatly. This is becomming a real pain in the butt, I am having to do this 2 or 3 times a day.

I should also add that everything is wired on gigabit eithernet.

A:Network Credentials Getting Lost

I should add to the above what may be a related matter, is that for the past few weeks, when I connected to my server drives, the display of the file list has been really slow. It would often take 20 seconds or so to list 30 or 40 files. On my XP machine which is on the desk behind me, the server connection is fine and the files display almost immediatly. The 7 machine, which is a much faster machine than the XP machine, has never been as fast listing directory contents as the XP, but it has always been pretty close. Now it is agonizingly painful to watch that Win 7 green bar creep across the top of the file manager window.

Hi,

I'm trying to add a network printer (shared from a Server) from a computer running Windows Vista Home Premium. The user must authenticate using different credentials, but I cannot find a way to force Vista to connect with different credentials.

In Windows 7 it is easy, I just add an entry in the credentials manager and everything works, I can connect to the server, access all the shares the user has access to, and add the printer.

In Windows Vista, I cannot do this. If I try to add a network credential in the "Stored User Names and Passwords", I can only add a "A Web site or program credential". The "A Windows logon credential" option is grayed out.

When I try to access the share from Windows Explorer, I get an access denied. Instead of having Windows popping up an authentication dialog it just tries using the credentials of the currently logged on user, which is not what I want.

If I try to add the printer using Add Printer Wizard -> Add a Network Printer, when I enter the path to the printer, I also get an access denied instead of having Windows popping up an authentication dialog.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Be sure that the User "name" you are using is correct. If you changed it since building the computer.

I ran into a problem when I renamed my wife's computer to "Karen" (when I setup the computer I named it "user1"). So when I see her computer on the network it says Karen, but the credentials for network access are still looking for "user1". Run "net user" at a command prompt to see what the system thinks is the User name.

It sounds like you be using the same User name on both of these machines from what you said here? Not sure but you can't use the same User name on both machines, they need to both be different. You might also want to check that the time/date settings on those two machines are exactly the same.

Hey guys,

My name is Ryan I am the Admin at a company with a small (40 terminal) network. Currently the network is on a workgroup running windows XP Pro on all machines. We have a NAS (N4100+ Thecus) on the network with protected folders (the authetication is done by the NAS, as that is where the users and protected folders are created and managed). The NAS shows up as NT 4.9 Server and all the folders that aren't password protected are readily accessible. The first time I attempt to login to a protected folder (having not logged in to ANY protected folders at all on the network) the login works fine. But if I go to a different protected folder under a different user I am prompted for the login credentials (which i type in correctly) but it then tells me I do not have permission to view this folder. When I type in the first protected folder path it doesn't ask me for login credetials and just lets me in. I am wondering where in XP does it store the login and password info for internal network IP's login so I can delete any saved credentials.

Thanks

Hey guys, im looking for some help with network drives. I am currently running win7 ultimate and am trying to share 2 drives: One HDD for movies and the other is a virtual BD-ROM drive. Problem is, i want to set it up so that the users on the network can have their own username and password to log in without having to create new local accounts for each one. Is there a way to do this? Another acceptable avenue would be to have "invisible" local accounts, which do not appear on the login screen.

SO, question is: Can i do it? and if yes, how?

Thanks for any help.

A:Network Drive Credentials without local accounts

Yes there is a way to do it, but you have to create local accounts. These accounts can be hidden from the login screen. See this technet. If you do not wish to create local accounts, there are other alternatives. Have you thought of setting up your own NAS server? You can buy one online or build your own (I think building your own is more fun), and it is better to have a dedicated machine for file sharing because you don't have to have your laptop/computer on all the time

ISP --Modem __Computer 1
                    |__Computer 2
 
Sorry for the attempt at that clumsy diagram. It is an ADSL connection if that makes any change. The system was working perfectly last few days in the sense that networking was working properly, as late as till last week.
 
The modem has the ISP credentials so I don't have to do anything but simply put in the eternet/lan 10 mbps port and I can access the 512 kbps Internet.
 
Now on Windows something changed, on booting to Debian it works so I know it is not a hardware issue but rather some sort of software issue. I had been updating microsoft security essentials in the hope it would be scanning actively for any viruses or trojans.  I had also been updating the updates via windowsupdate . Now either one of the updates or some program installation has messed up the networking and for the life of me don't know which. Even Updates are not helpful as I haven't been able to see a view which tells which update was on which date or something like that so I could try to revert it and see if that fixes.

When I try to create a system image on a network location Windows asks for Network credentials for the target location. The credentials I enter are correct but I always get an error message that the location can't be used because the password is not correct (Error code 0x80070056).
Is this a bug in Windows 7? Any way to fix or work around this?

A:Network credentials fail (Error code 0x80070056)

Btw. it's a netdrive - D-Link DNS-323. And the drive I want access for the backup is already mapped to my computer.

I have just replaced an old XP box with our first Windows 8.1 Pro client. Joined the domain (Server 2008 R2, using active directory), seamed quite normal. When I rebooted, I received the normal windows logon screen, user name & password, entered those and logged in. The problem being, all resources on the network required me to enter network credentials. For example, try and double click on file server get following 'Windows Security' window:
Enter network credentials. Enter your credentials to connect to: SERVER.
The system cannot contact a domain controller to service the authentication request. Please try again later

I have: unjoined and rejoined client to domain; Checked active directory and the computer is correctly registered. Nothing is helping. Please help.

A:Network Credentials issue, win 8.1 client & Server 2008 AD

According to Paul Thurrott you need to add the credentials by going into the Windows vault per method #2 in the link below. If you don't add the credentials to the vault then Windows won't remember them despite checking the box to remember credentials.

He is using Windows server 08 and Homegroups with Windows 8 and he shows both methods to access network shares on the server.

No comment about the link I posed here>???

By the way I know this is solved, hoping you can come back to confirm this.

I have got W10 now including two W10 and 2 W7s on my home network... Different users and passwords on each one and all have a shared folder. Yes I set the network config for 'don't ask for passwords'... BUT of course I am asked for credentials when trying to access the other computer's shared folders and of course I don't understand....I have looked at all the threads on this but I still don't get it...
Time for plain talk:
A Is it asking for my credentials on the target computer like remote desktop does ? I am sure the other users won't give me their user/password...
B Is it asking it asking for my username and password on my computer ? This computer. Like it doesn't know who is logged on to this computer ? My user and my password ? Are those credentials passed to the other computers in any way or are they kept safe on here ?
I don't have a Microsoft account.... do I need one ? What a mess, the whole world is asking this and can't figure it out so I am not alone...

Can anyone give me really simple, short, lucid way to network my W10s and W7s and get past all this credential junk ... ? Now here is a laugh.....my last job included managing a network of 15 work computers ... If I gave a damn any more I would be embarrassed... How can Microsoft release this on the public worldwide ? I have never been able to make sense of Microsoft's explanations of anything; neither has my wife actually and she is a senior IT bod ! If Joe public can't tell me in plain English, t... Read more

I am trying to map a network share that is running on a Win-XP Pro machine, from Win-7. When I browse for the share I want, Win-7 puts up a dialog asking for the log-in credentials for the XP machine. But when I put in the requested user name and password, they are rejected. The weird thing is that if I just go the the Win-7 Network and Sharing Center applet, the machine and shared folder that I want to map to the Win-7 machine show up just fine, and I can access files in the shared folder with no problems whatsoever. And I don't get asked for log-in credentials at all. The user name and password are identical on both machines.

And I can map shares to the XP box from the Win-7 box with no problems, and without any request for log-in credentials.

So, what am I missing?

I have a windows 10 home computer with a Netgear Stora NAS. The PC is connected to my router via Wi-Fi whilst the NAS is via Ethernet cable. I am running McAfee Security Centre rather than Windows defender/Firewall. After every restart of my PC, the NAS
is no longer visible on the Network. If I then use a shortcut to the NAS I have pined in file explorer, a pop up appears asking for me to re-enter the password for the NAS. Once I have done this and checked the box to remember the credentials, the NAS reappears
and I can open the folders within it. However, as soon as I restart the PC, the same recurring problem arises. I have tried changing the ip address of the NAS to static on my BT Home Hub 6 but the problem persists. In credentials manager, the username and
password for the NAS are correct every time I check.
Can any one help? Is this a problem inherent to Windows 10 Credentials manager, a problem with the mixed Wi-Fi/Ethernet network, a firewall issue or something even more left field I haven't even considered?
Many thanks

Over the past month we have been experiencing a problem with Windows XP.
All PC's are on XP SP3 and are on a domain.

But just recently some users are having difficulty printing and getting to network shares. This happens because they are not authorised. We sometimes get this error message in the bottom right hand corner.

Please lock this computer, then unlock it using your most recent password or smart card. Please clock to see more information.

When we do this the problem doesn’t go away and that message appears every time we try to print to a network printer or open a shared drive.

This is becoming really Frustrating and embarrassing for us now and we would really like a fix.

Thank you for your time.

Hi All,

Wondering if someone can offer some assistance, I have just done a clean install of Windows 10 Professional (July release) and I see a few things have changed, Like the start bar etc.

The issue I am having is that whenever I try connect to a network resource (im on a Workgroup and not a corporate LAN) I am getting the Windows Security - Enter Network Credentials box below however, I only have a cancel button and no place to actually fill in the credentials.
I am presuming its trying to use my Microsoft account to logon however, is this a bug?

if anyone can tell me how to solve this issue I would be so grateful

A:Windows Security - Enter Network Credentials (ONLY CANCEL OPTION)

Pretty weird. Have you tried entering credentials via Control Panel/Credential Manager?

Username would be DISKSTATION\userid

Whenever i try to log on to my work server using remote desktop on windows 7, i get the above message (with xx.xxx.xxx.xx being the servers IP adress), no matter what i try. I have allowed connections from computers running any version of remote desktop in control panel -> system and security ->allow remote access, but to no avail. I have also tried using the domain name instead of the IP, but it still wont work. I can access the server from my XP machine, so the problem must be on the windows 7 machine somewhere. I hope you can help me.

A:Windows 7 Remote Desktop says: "The credentials that were used to connect to xx.xxx.xxx.xx did not work. Please enter new credentials".

Hi,
 
I suggest you create a new admin account and login on the machine with new created account to check the result. If the issue persists, please restart the machine with the original user account and collect the following log file for research.
 
Collect Event log
=========================
a. Click "Start", input "eventvwr" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search bar and press Enter.
b. Right click on "Application" on the left frame, choose "Save Log file As"; in the pop-up window, click to choose the Desktop icon on the left frame, input "app" in the "File name" blank, and then click save.
c. Right click on "System", with the same method, save it as "sys".
d. Locate the two saved log files on the Desktop and upload it.
 
Thanks,
Novak

I have network resources available over a VPN connection but Windows 7 will not use the credentials I have entered in credential manager nor does it prompt me for user credentials upon opening the resource.  I have tried the following:

-delete entry from credential manager

-net use * /del (result "there are no entries in the list")

-net use \\servername /del (result "the network connection could not be found")

-net use /persistent:no

None of these steps have done anything to resolve this issue. Please advise another solution to clear the mysteriously cached credentials.....

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm running Windows 7 Professional and have a major annoyance. My main corporate file store is a hosted Sharepoint server, which I've mapped into Explorer using Add Network Location.

When setting this up and subsequently, I've entered my UN and PW then checked the "Remember my credentials" box. However, every time I try to open a document from the share, I get the Credentials dialog thrown at me. As I access hundreds of documents a day, you can imagine this is completely infuriating.

What can I do to resolve this? I checked in "User Accounts" under "Credential Manager" and I have two entries - one for Windows Credentials and one for Generic Credentials - both are accurate.

Please help before I go utterly insane.

I have backup software that takes a backup to a secure share on a NAS drive. When it's done the connection/session/whatever is left open so the share can still be accessed without reentering the credentials. How do I tell windows to break the connection (or whatever the appropriate term is) so that credentials have to be entered again?

I know rebooting works. I assume logging off and back on also works. Is there some simple command to break the connection?

A:re-remembering

Go to Tools > Options > Privacy > Passwords tab > View Saved Passwords button > Passwords Never Saved tab, and remove the site from the list. Then go to the site and when the options box appears, save the password for this site.

You might need to tick the Remember Passwords box under the Passwords tab for this feature to work.

Whenever I would go to a site and type in my user name and a new pin, xp would prompt me to remember the pin, so that if I clicked and my user name came up, my pin would automatically be entered.

Now, when I go to Fidelity Investments, I click, but no user name comes up. When I manually enter, no reminder to save the pin comes up either.

When I go to other sites and click, my user name and pin come up.

I don't know if it is a Fidelity site thing, or if I need to do something else.

I did check "autocomplete" in the "content" tab of tools in ie6. and everything is checked.

Any ideas? Thanks!
